Hello, everyone! Happy Pink Saturday! Today is my birthday. So I think it is appropriate to have a Pink Saturday post that is about my Mom.
A while back, I had a post about hanging photos on a piece of twine. I included this studio portrait of my Mom when she was a little girl. By the way, that photo on the left is also of Mom when she was in her teens – 16 or 18? (Mom will let me know.) I’ve always loved this picture of Mom pouring tea. My grandmother had 3 different poses from this shoot on her wall for years. Mom’s banana curls and her shiny shoes and her dress are so adorable. I have that dress – handmade by my Grandmother. It has been safely stowed away in my dresser drawer all these years.
Writing that post got me to thinking about the dress and I retrieved it from the drawer. When I was out treasure hunting, I came across the perfect vintage child’s hanger.
Grandma was a wonderful seamstress – look at the ruffles and the smocking – just perfect. My Mom is 82 now, so this dress has been around a long time. Perhaps I will frame it and have it on display. Although, the color has been preserved because it has been kept out of the light. What to do?
Thanks Mom – and Dad – for being the great parents you are. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Please stop by How Sweet the Sound for a list of everyone participating this week.
